Lake Lucerne reviews
Beautiful blue lake with backdrop of snow-capped mountains. There are wonderful walkways along the edge of the lake and chances to enjoy scenes of boats coming and going and many different waterbirds.

It’s a massive lake that’s very peaceful and calming. I did a daily walk along it (with many locals) and it was really good in nice weather and bad weather to be at. Lots of activity on the lake...

Beautiful view of mountain. Very serene. Lake walk in night is recommended
Sailed from Lucerne to Flüelen on the Uri, Europe's oldest paddle steamer. The 100 year old boat is in the best possible conditions and offers all amenities with a flair of the grand old times. The panoramic boat ride lasts around 2:45 h, in early October there was a fresh breeze so bring warm cloth if you plan to stay outside. The upper deck is beautifully sunny, but other areas more wind protected. The morning fog soon lifted and views opened, so don't be deterred if the morning looks gloomy. The restaurant serves food and drink, but nobody minds if you bring your own either. Indoors there are information panels and one can watch the steam engine in full action. It looks as shiny and new as it started operations yesterday, not 100 years ago.
Can't get enough of this place! A beautiful lake surrounded by mountains, bustling with activity and peaceful at the same time!
enjoy the beautiful Lake scenery on ship which you can freely take if you have Swiss travel pass.
